Marisa Tallie


I am a Digital Marketing Strategist and Podcast host, with over 14 years of international PR, Digital Marketing, and Social Media experience and 7 years of starting and running a boutique PR agency in Cape Town.   

I founded Stream in 2020, after selling my PR agency, to pursue my passion of helping start-ups and solopreneurs Accelerate Brand Awareness and scale their businesses online, through specialised Workshops, Online Courses, and 1:1 Strategy Consulting.

I run Stream alongside my other business, wellnessinthecity.co.za which started in 2015 as a marketing and content creation platform for lifestyle, travel, and wellness brands which I run with my business partner; Nicole van der Spuy.

My career in PR began with a promising start when I won the ‘Best up-and-coming PR Professional’ award in 2010. At the age of 25 I founded the PR consultancy Butter Knife PR, and together my business partner and I scaled the company into becoming one of the most sought-after boutique PR agencies in South Africa.

Running a results-driven agency for seven years was still one of my biggest learnings and career achievements, including highlights such as supporting Australian retail giant The Cotton On Group launch over 300 stores and managing the PR for Edward Snell for over three years, assisting in driving 20% year on year growth for their alcohol portfolio, including brands such as Glenfiddich, Grant’s and The Balvenie.

Furthermore, my experience in the UK offered incredible growth and experience in executing international campaigns such as managing the communications for Samsung at the 2012 London Summer Olympics and representing renowned brands such as Universal Pictures, Colgate, Palmolive and Ferrero Roche.
